Michael Smith runs the Cook Portable Warehouses lot in Muskogee, Oklahoma. After taking over the lot, he re-strategized and moved location right into the heart of town. He loves selling these portable buildings because he believes that Cook Cares and has confidence in the superiority of the product he’s selling.
“Look, if you’re needing a building and want to keep your stuff safe for a long, long time, then a Cook building is what you need,” Smith said.
Smith’s father worked in construction and when he toured the buildings he said he couldn’t believe the quality of the workmanship and materials. Anytime someone with a background in construction walks through his lot, he hears this phrase: “You build these like they’re a little house!”
The quality found in all of the portable buildings is because Cook cares about you as a customer and the endurance of the buildings they manufacture. “We want to keep you as a customer for a long time,” Smith said.
“You aren’t buying a building for 3 years, you have a partnership for a long, long time with Cook Portable Warehouses,” he explained. He said if you ever do have a problem, you’ll be working with a Cook employee, because that’s how much they care about their customers.
Smith has seen people use their Cook portable buildings as workout gyms, she sheds, man caves and more. One of his first questions isn’t “What do you want?”, instead it’s, “What do you plan to use your shed for?”
After he understands how you plan to use your shed, he can better direct you to the best options for your needs. One of his more popular sheds is a 12x32 ft. Lofted Garage.
Smith enjoys joking around with his customers and he genuinely enjoys talking with them, even after they’ve purchased. “I have people who come into town a year after they’ve bought their shed just to come in for a cup of coffee and to chat,” he said.
Why Smith Chose Cook
Before deciding to work with Cook, he researched the company and discovered they held many of the same values he did. There are things Smith says he likes in people, like integrity, and he said Cook really stands for being the best they can be. “It’s just a pleasure to work here. I have a job and a company that backs me up,” Smith said. “It was just a match, I found a career with Cook.”
Testimonials from Customers
When we moved to Muskogee we needed a building to start doing woodworking out of, so of course we shopped around. Cooks was the last place that we stopped (if we had started there first it would have saved us a ton of time). When we got there Michael came out to greet us and was very professional and friendly. He listened and cared about what we needed. He was not out to just sell a building, his goal was for us to be happy and get what worked for us. He was very knowledgeable and if he didn’t know the answer he didn’t pretend that he did, he said he would find out and get back to us, which he did! The process was smooth with no issues! Cooks is a great place and Michael is a fantastic person and salesman. Wendie Searan
I recently purchased a building from Michael at Cook Warehouse and could not be more pleased with the transaction. The building was just what I needed and Michael was very helpful with helping me decide which unit I needed. He was very professional throughout the whole transaction with the sale and right through delivery of the building. Michael is a credit to the company and I have recommended Cook and especially dealing with Michael to several people.Martin Wade
We had been looking for a building for a while and just happen to see one sitting at cooks in Muskogee stopped and looked and it was what we wanted. Went in and sat down with Michael and he got it done for us. We we’re very happy with the service we received. Michael is a really nice guy and we still stop by and talk to him. I always recommend cooks and Michael to our friends and people we meet who are wanting a building and we plan on buying another one in the near future. Thank You Michael for the great service.
